The convention on this list appears to be
to: a person
cc: the list
so that's what I do. My response is on the list, but some mail systems
do various things like:
. deliver only one copy of messages (which could explain your case,
where you received just the personal copy),
. refuse to deliver messages they recognise as coming from the sender
(which can lead people to keep reposting a message to a list
because they think it never arrives).

Fair enough. There are two things to watch out for:
. the headings are left/right paired, so you can get gaps below them.
(I use this as a positive feature with Anglican chants, using opus
for the composer and meter for any necessary annotation, thereby
ensuring that the composer is close-set and a lengthy annotation
will not collide with it.)
. There are LP headers that find their way into the PDF metadata, and
they might end up mislabelled there. Not a worry for most people,
and there are probably ways to edit such metadata anyway.
